This is for today's neat sketch challenge. I had to give it a try . I really felt in a dark and warmer mood so went with a " man-card"...I think I must be sick...in the mood for browns...lol...Must have been thinking of PAT..(smethers)...as she loves them and got me to liking them to with her beautiful creations.
So I started with this strong stallion, colored hime with water colors andpen, mounted it on this lovely fleur-de leis That I got form a sweet dear friend, I sponged it in browns to match my horse more and then added a touch of black around the edges to to give it not sure what to call it a rustic look or older.
Then I cut my dps and added them . the side strip did not quite match so I sponged more of the same brown I did on the horse and jsut gave it a closer matching shade which worked...yah...lol...:0) added teh brads in the top corner and decided to add ones along the corners of my " wooden" edge...I am quite happy how it turned out as man -cards for me are harder to make ( not even sure why )
Thanks for visiting...been a crazy few days so has been nice to get a card done, helps to relax...take care all...:0)

Everything about your card makes this stallion stand out, and that's what it's suppose to do! I had to laugh reading your write-up; brown isn't one of those "fun to use" colors! I find it hard also. When my son asked me to make a wedding card for a friend, and the colors were brown and gold, now that was a challenge! Great man card~
